Michael Beasley has never shaped up to be the player that many expected when the Miami Heat drafted him second overall out of Kansas State. Between his play on the court and some of the issues off the court, it’s fair to say that he’s been a major disappointment.
He’s only shooting 40% from the field this year, but now he might have more issues on his hand than a struggling jump shot. Beasley was reportedly pulled over for multiple violations on January 25th. Via Arizona Sports:
According to a report obtained through a FOIA request, it has been learned that Suns forward Michael Beasley, on January 25, was pulled over by Scottsdale Police due to speeding down Scottsdale Road at about 1:10 a.m.
He was cited for driving with a suspended license, driving with excessive speed, driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate on the rear of the vehicle. Driving with a suspended license and excessive speeding are criminal traffic violations, whereas driving with expired registration and failure to display a license plate are civil traffic violations.
It should be noted that according to the report, the police officers decided to let him go due to his cooperation. Nonetheless, this is not a good look for Michael Beasley.
We’ll see if anything else comes of this, but I’m sure that both Beasley and the Phoenix Suns have their fingers crossed for the best.
Michael Beasley is averaging 10.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game this season.
